logo-houseworks-rylandAs energy costs rise (along with concerns about the environment), it’s a great time to purchase a home from a builder who is energy-aware. Ryland Homes offers a program called HouseWorks®, which allows your home to preserve the environment, conserve more energy, and provide comfort for you and your family. This helps to reduce your utility bills and the environment—a win-win!

The level of detail they consider in energy efficiency is incredible. Here are a few features you will find in your Ryland Home at WaterGrass:

  • GE Energy Star appliances, which can reduce your energy use by up to 20 percent
  • Airtight construction, tested by a third party to determine that all doors and windows are airtight. This helps to prevent condensation, drafts, and to maximize the efficiency of your heating and cooling.
  • Green-label approved carpeting, which means that it is among the lowest-emitting carpeting on the market.
  • High-quality insulation that settles only 1-3 percent with no impact on performance.
  • Fixtures with CFL light bulbs, which use less energy and reduce carbon dioxide.
  • Low volatile organic compound interior paint, primer, and stains for better air quality and lower environmental impact.
  • Leading brand thermostat that provides 33 percent annual savings on heading and cooling costs.
  • Double pane, low-E windows reduce solar heat inside the home and are Energy Star Certified.

And these are just a few of the many HouseWorks® features that you will appreciate once you move into your new Ryland Home at WaterGrass!

At WaterGrass, Ryland builds 3-5 bedroom homes from the $230s in the newly opened Whisper Pointe neighborhood, a part of the grand opening of Phase II.

Bedrooms are such an important part of our day—they are where we sleep, where we wake up, where we retreat for privacy. It is important that bedrooms are comfortable, that they feel like home, and that they set the tone for the day. You want your bedroom to be a place where you can wake up and feel like something wonderful could happen today. That’s why we love the bedroom designs in Ryland’s Celebration Model. They put together 3 incredible, stylish bedrooms that are warm, inviting, calming, and make any visitor want to snuggle in for the rest of the day.

The Master Bedroom ended up being the designer’s favorite room in the model. “The palette is soothing and is balanced with stronger accents to create interest and add contrast. The architectural detail on the ceiling is reflective of the design elements in the room and helps make this a strong and cohesive space,” said Cheryl Loeb of Builders’ Design, who worked with Ryland on the interior design of this beautiful model.

Check out the incredible bedroom designs:

At WaterGrass in Wesley Chapel, Florida, we are celebrating the grand opening of Phase II and several incredible new fully furnished and professionally decorated models. Since each model is so thoughtfully planned, we have decided to interview the builders and designers about the work behind each breathtaking design. Today we would like to feature the Celebration by Ryland Homes. We sat down with Cheryl Loeb of Builders’ Design, who worked with Ryland on the interior design of this beautiful model.

Living-RoomWhat is your favorite aspect of the model floor plan?
My favorite aspect of the model floor plan is the open design of the first floor. Not only is it perfect for entertaining friends, the partial walls between the Living/Dining Room and Family Room create a visual divide for intimate family spaces.

Master-Bedroom-1What is your favorite room in the model?
My favorite room in the model is the Master Bedroom. The palette is soothing and is balanced with stronger accents to create interest and add contrast. The architectural detail on the ceiling is reflective of the design elements in the room and helps make this a strong and cohesive space.

DenWhat was the basis of your inspiration for the interior design?
My inspiration for the interior design of this model was from a national trending company who works closely with Builders’ Design to develop design direction based on buyer demographic studies. In this case it is for Gen Now and the style is modern.

Family-RoomHow did the architecture inspire your selections?
The open plan dictated that we use a muted color palette to flow from space to space. This created a soft backdrop for stronger accent patterns such as the kitchen tile, drapery panels, and family room area rug.

Eat-In-KitchenWhich accent pieces do you find most interesting?
The two furniture pieces I find most interesting are the consoles in the foyer and family room. Gen Now uses the word “character” when describing what they select for their home. Not only do these pieces best fit that description—they are also very memorable.

Dining-RoomTell us more about the most distinct finish, selection, or option included in the model.
The most distinct selection I included in the model is the ceramic tile backsplash in the home. We thought outside of the box and rotated the linear tile design vertical. This created a statement, especially contrasted against the white cabinetry.

Do you have any decorating tips for those looking to enhance their home?
When decorating a home, it’s important to start with something you love and build around it. Also at the onset of starting a decorating project, it’s very important to begin with a plan and make sure that color palettes carry from space to space, especially in open plans.

What is your decorating background?
I have is a B.S. in Interior Design. I worked in the residential field for several years as an Interior Designer; however my passion is working as a Model Home Merchandiser/Designer with Builders’ Design. I’ve been with the company for fifteen years.

The holidays are approaching, and hosts across the country are imagining and planning how they will use their kitchen, dining room, and other gathering and entertaining spaces when the guests arrive. If you are searching for a home, it’s possible you are very tuned in to these spaces when you look at a home during this season. As you walk through homes, it’s fun to imagine the hugs in the entryway, the laughter and conversation around the table, and the comforting aroma of the feast that is being prepared.

Check out these amazing gourmet kitchens (beautifully put together in the new WaterGrass model homes!) from our various builders. Imagine hosting your holiday celebrations here! Click the photos for more information on each model.

We have been celebrating the Phase II Grand Opening at WaterGrass. The much anticipated Phase II includes 4 new neighborhoods of home sites, incredible new models from our amazing builders, and homes for every price range, from the $230s to over $1 million! We have been very excited to hear what realtors think of the new home sites and fully furnished, professionally decorated models, and their comments have not disappointed.

Here is some of what we have overheard from realtors so far!

Lanai at Celebration
“Every single home has a great outdoor living space.”

Bakerfield Balcony
“The views from the models were gorgeous. Watching the sunset from the balcony of the Vintage Estate Homes model was breathtaking.” [Photo above is the view from Bakerfield’s Cordova.]

Saratoga-Pool-9-29-14
“If I had the outdoor area of the Standard Pacific Homes Saratoga, I’d live out there.”

Brentwood Kitchen
“I absolutely loved the tile in the Standard Pacific Homes Brentwood.”

Cordova Bathroom
“I haven’t seen finishes like that anywhere.” (After seeing the tray ceilings, moldings, and stone work at the Bakerfield Luxury Homes Cordova model.)

Vintage Great Room & Kitchen 11-7-14
“Vintage Estate Homes model was outstanding just as is. It is going to be unbelievable when it officially opens.”

Thank you, realtors, for all of the WaterGrass love! If you haven’t been to see the amazing Phase II home sites and model homes, make an appointment to visit today! It will not disappoint.
